Newbie Buried boy

I shot this one on a small beach just north of San Francisco. Can't recall the name of the park right now. Named after that explorer fellow.

I have his mothers permission to take the photograph. she thanked me but hasn't asked for a copy yet. Her and his sister buried him Great fun at the beach.

Re: Buried boy

I did this one all in CS2 (thought you all may like that; lol). Could have done it in GIMP/Irfanview of course, but I have to take out CS2 for a ride once in a while.

Seems to me there's a Balboa Park in SF. Is that it?

Re: Buried boy

Nope, I don't think that's the name of it either. It's Muir Beach on Google:

Hey, looking great. You do know of course if you changed the ink color to black-ish it would be a wood cut type of thing no? Have to try that myself if I can figure out how you did it.

I just got a new iMac 2.88MGhz and am trying out"Stonehenge" CS4 to see if it is any different (not so far). It just works on OS 10.5.2.

Re: Buried boy

Still a filter excercise Gunner; used Flaming Pear's India Ink filter. Not sure if it is available in MAC format. Still Xylograph and India Ink blends really help with woodcut renderings; been doing a lot of them lately.
